Regulator - TC7660S, Charge Pump DC-TO-DC Voltage Converter, 8-Pin DIP
TC7660S charge pump voltage converter in an 8 pin DIP package. The TC7660S device is a pin-compatible replacement for the industry standard 7660 charge pump voltage converter. It converts a +1.5V to +12V input to a corresponding -1.5V to -12V output using only two low-cost capacitors, eliminating inductors and their associated cost, size and electromagnetic interference (EMI). Added features include an extended supply range to 12V, and a frequency boost pin for higher operating frequency, allowing the use of smaller external capacitors. The on-board oscillator operates at a nominal frequency of 10 kHz. Frequency is increased to 45 kHz when pin 1 is connected to V+.

PCB - Vintage Style Circuit Board, MKI Fuzz
This board is a recreation of the MKI circuit board found in early Tone Bender pedals. When drawing the layout, an original board was closely referenced to ensure a proper match and fit. Since the MKI boards were hand drilled, the holes have an organic layout that was somewhat unique to each build. This board follows the exact hole pattern of one of these original builds. The build style is also fairly unique in the MK1. It is a point to point style board without eyelets or turrets. The leads of the parts are wrapped upward around the edge of the board and then solder is applied to connect the components. For a detailed drawing of the parts and connections originally used on this board, please see the layout drawing linked below. There are numerous great parts choices available for this PCB.

PCB - Vintage Style Circuit Board, MKII Fuzz
Colors Available:
This board is a recreation of the circuit board found in Tone Bender Professional MKII pedals. When drawing the layout, an original board was closely referenced to ensure a proper match and fit. Since the MKII boards were cut from stripboard, this board follows the same format but is completely ready for soldering with precut traces and drilled mounting holes. The build style is very straightforward on the Mk2. It is a standard stripboard build and follows a very linear circuit path across the board. The traces are gold plated making soldering easier than most stripboards. Additionally the plating provides protection from corrosion. For a detailed drawing of the parts and connections originally used on this board, please see the layout drawing linked below. There are numerous great parts choices available for this PCB.
